Proof that he doesn't sweep scandals under the rug

ST. LOUIS Thousands of dollars in cash perhaps $40,000 or more has been stolen from the evidence vault in the property-custody room in the basement of St. Louis Police Headquarters, the Post-Dispatch has learned.

The theft is the second from a safe inside the Police Department this year. Police Chief Joe Mokwa disciplined several high-ranking officers for their lack of accountability in that earlier case, the department confirmed.
